president obama's departure to israel yesterday. the white house has yet to verify the claims but lawmakers are increasingly calling for action. here's what president obama said earlier today in a joint press conference with israeli prime minister netanyahu. >> with respect to chemical weapons, we intend to investigate thoroughly exactly what happened. obviously, in syria right now, you've got a war zone. you have information that's filtered out. but we have to make sure that we know exactly what happened, what was nature of the incident, what can we document, what can we prove. i've instructed me teams to work closely with all other countries in the region, and international organizations, and institutions to find out precisely whether or not this red line was crossed. i will note without at this point having all the facts before me, that we know the syrian government has the capacity to carry out chemical weapon attacks. we know that there are those there the syrian government who have compressed a willingness to use-- expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necessary, to prote

verse is lit up by saying all you guys are so unfair because we know president obama doesn't control legislation, the republican house does. why don't you tell us, yes, republicans need do things, but is there more barack obama can do to use his bully bill put to push this issue forward? >> yes, and he knows it. social security happened because of franklin roosevelt. i don't think you can anyone anyone in congress back then responsible for social security. civil rights and voting rights act in '64 and '65 were because lindon johnson took the southern democrats and others literally by the ears and said, you will vote for this. people want it. h is right, end of story. go up there and vote for it. and obama, president obama, i really think he just has to get his game on here and start kicking some butt because the people will be behind him if he does. >> even though the republicans have shown no willingness to negotiate with him on anything else, you think this has to be an effort he's got to make? >> absolutely. i think -- i don't want our side to be constantly whining and complaining

number two, one of the signature issues of obama's first campaign for the white house. the president's pledge to close gitmo. are i have said repeatedly, i intend to close guantanamo, and i will follow through on that. >> we're learning that a hunger strike at the detention facility is expanding to 25. one u.s. general is playing down those reports, though, saying action is a result of anger at president obama. >> they were particularly put off, i'm told, when the president has made no mention of closing the facility. nothing in the inauguration speech this is them bringing this up to us. nothing in the inauguration speech about closing it. nothing in the state of the union. >> in january, the office working to close gitmo set up by the president, it was closed itself. the special envoy in charge, reassigned, with no plans whatsoever to replace him. our question, will gitmo ever close? jason. >> you know what? it probably won't and this is one of the great embarrassments of the 21st century in the united states. these are men and women who are accused of crime. not lex luthor, the jo

-term elections, and then someone else writes to dean, it will never get through the house unless, of course, obama comes out against it. so dean, people seem skeptical about congress. is that shocking? >> not shocking at all. it's unreal. you know what makes it really unbelievable to all of us is that 90% of americans in polls support universal background checks for anyone buying a gun, what's called the gun show loophole. the assault weapons ban will never pass. that's the interesting thing. congress does nothing. doesn't work on the budget. you know, doesn't pass gun control to. me i think we should take a page from the nhl owners and nfl owners and lock congress out for a month. let them work at a motel 6. they are not doing the jobs. republicans and democrats should unify on the outside and make them do something object inside for us. >> i stopped reading tweets on the air, but i'm doing it just for you, all right? >> this is big. this is retro. >> followed up the skeptics with this question. how can we push congress to just get things done? one of your fans tweeted i'd lock them all in

to presidential humor. we've seen more of than a couple from president obama. >> this is my last white house correspondents' dinner as president. i'm not sure what i'm going to do next. after he left office, vice president gore won an oscar and the nobel peace prize. hey, i don't know, i might win a prize, publishing clearinghouse or something. >> i went shopping at some stores in midtown. i understand governor romney went shopping for some stores in midtown. it's great to be here this evening in the vast, magnificent hilton ballroom or what mitt romney would call a little fixer-upper. >> dean, you see this as a big change in presidential joking, right? the attack comic. >> it is. i wrote about it in my cnn opinion article. you can see the contrast in jokes from reagan making fun of himself for being old. bush made fun of his inability to speak english. self-deprecating humor, you can't go wrong. it makes people like you. no one's offended because you're making fun of yourself. i should do that more. but president obama's turned it around. he does it like a comedian, like "the daily show." t

in the obama white house as an economic top advisor. so we know that for the past three years, growth in america has fallen well below, really, what the congressional budget office, our experts, have predicted. these studies show our debt is hurting the economy now and that increased spending and more debt must end now. it cannot be contended any longer that it is good for america to borrow more and spend more. we cannot borrow more to spend more. somebody compared that to taking a bucket in one end -- the deep end of the swimming pool and filling it up and going to the shallow end and pouring it in. the borrow to spend and you drop some along the way, truth be known. we must grow the economy, not keep growing the government and certainly not keep growing the debt. so i believe we all know this. i think the american people know it. and we in congress have a responsibility to honestly confront this challenge and put our country on the right path. and, as we've learned, we actually don't have to cut spending. all we really need to do is allow the spending to increase, but allow it to in
